Seriously, though, I'm gonna disagree with this. I think it's more people personifying the Nintendo image as a typical fan. I've seen people do this with Disney, one of the most cut-throat corporations in existence, where they view the company as the incarnation of Mickey Mouse. Really, does that guy yelling about boycotting Ubisoft remind you of a jolly, happy-go-lucky plumber?
We've had tons of Nintendo fans get banned here and still some of the most aggressive members are on the Nintendo side of the field. Nintendo threads are dog-eat-dog battlegrounds, filled to the brim with the remains of the slow and the unlucky. In my experience, there really isn't much difference, as each faction boasts plenty of good and bad.
Also, MISTER Kahn deleted my signature minutes after I said something good about EA. Coincidence? You tell me.
